A Wee Bit 'O Irish

5th Annual St. Patrick's Day Blog Crawl
Happy St. Patrick's Day

Being  a Higgins through and through  on my dear mither's side,   I  canno' let  a St. Paddy's Day  come and go wi'out  a bit of  celebratin'!

T he Irish in me  inclines me to break me fast  bright an' early every mornin'

Right after I might give this wee blessing to start me day!

Said in the morning when rising...
Christ be with me,
be after me,
be before me,
and be at my right and left hand.
May everything I do be for Christ

An Old Irish Blessing
May love and laughter light your days,
and warm your heart and home.
May good and faithful friends be yours,
wherever you may roam.
May peace and plenty bless your world
with joy that long endures.
May all life's passing seasons
bring the best to you and yours!

God bless ye, one and all, who  enter in today!
